Krisb - Depends upon what information you enter when #1 you use your existing Pay Pal account or #2 you enter your one-time information when you make the donation.
Further Clarification on Donations:
I will not be posting names if I get them though, for the simple reason many WANT or NEED to be anonymous. I respect this.
However, we at FedUpUSA will know the names if they are provided. Even if they are not, every donation, no matter how small is very appreciated. My (and RJazz's) financial situation has been an open book for the better part of a year. Suffice it to say, it is not good.
We started FedUpUSA because we love our country, we care about the people of this country and NEEDED to find some way to help Karl make a difference. When things got dicey here on TF between those that wanted strictly an investment/trading Forum and those who felt the same way we did, I realized it would be necessary to separate the two so as not to escalate the friction, which was becoming destructive.
The effort it takes to run FedUpUSA has evolved into a VERY time consuming endeavor, especially with the constant-changing landscape of our economic situation and repeated interventions by our government and regulatory bodies. This means we have very little time to trade or learn about the market situation other than how it pertains to the 'bigger picture'. A good part of our income is derived from our trading account that has been very neglected, especially over the past month. In addition, I have missed work days and RJ in particular, has missed other opportunities to make money for and support our own family. We were very against asking for donations because we didn't want to (A) give the wrong impression (are we doing this for profit?) and detract from our mission or (B) make anyone feel guilty or obligated.
That being said, it became obvious that FedUpUSA would be at risk of failure if WE personally failed financially. If we were not able to sustain ourselves, like with our Internet, telephone and fax bills or you know, other little things like eating, the mission would be aborted involuntarily.
So, we have decided that it was something that was necessary and will be completely voluntary. The money goes strictly to help allow us to keep the fight going.
Our deepest appreciation goes to EVERYONE who has and continues to work hard in THEIR OWN WAY - all of you who have faxed, called, e-mailed, written, and in any other way, helped to spread the word and get the mssage out, make FedUpUSA effective. If anyone wants to donate, that too, is very appreciated. That being said, in all honesty, without SOME donations though, it is likely FedUpUSA's future is at risk.
